Well well well i really do leave these updates few and far between.
Since my last update the engine did get built and the baby arrived the same week
Here's some pics of the progress seeing as people love pictures.
Got to use my friends office in his garage which was handy i must say
Started off my getting everything masked off so i never scratched the freshly skimmed head when lapping the valves or painted stuff not meaning to be painted.
Some cleaning was in order to get these valves back to the best they could be before the lapping of valves began
Some new uprated HKS valve springs. Not that they needed replaced but it was one of those while im in there i best just replace them situations
Some nice new Tomei type B poncams got installed which should be enough for the drive ability and power i shall be running
Then onto getting everything cleaned up in the block starting off with the oil squirters
Freshly balanced crank got installed with ACL race bearings and ARP main studs
Wossner pistons and PEC rods
ARP headstuds installed along with a Tomei oil restrictor to stop all the oil going straight to the head which can be an issue with these engines
With the rb26 using such old technology of coils it was time to upgrade to some r35 coils and platinum racing products coil bracket kit which consists of the bracket and proper stalks for the coils so the spark plug wells actually seal. You'll never see if but its pretty haha
Some superforma goodies getting installed so i can remote mount the filter and help drain the oil out the head and back to the sump, along with the platinum racing products trigger kit.
Then to finish it all off this tomei head gasket to accommodate for the amount the head and block had to be skimmed
Finished off with a ATI harmonic balancer and here with have the finished article. Now to just get it to fit and working in the zed.
Heaps ive missed out but my head being up my bottom at the moment i cant remember much...haha
Next job involves custom sump then onto stripping the whole underneath for powdercoating, polybushing and undersealing.
Wish me luck
